North Korea has fired six short-range projectiles into the sea, South Korea’s defence ministry has said, hours after the UN imposed tough new sanctions.
A South Korean spokesman told the Yonhap news agency the projectiles were fired at about 10:00 local time (01:00 GMT) from Wonsan on the east coast.
They were either rockets or guided missiles, the ministry said.
Correspondents say it is being seen as an act of defiance against the sanctions.
